The Ultimate Samsung Galaxy Comparison.

by birtanpublished on September 30, 2020

this is completely insane welcome to
something incredible and pretty
expensive so we've managed to get one of
every single Samsung Galaxy S and we're
gonna speed test them just for you that
though this is kind of an opportunity
here so we're gonna unbox them quickly
and see how that experience compares
let's start with the Galaxy S 10 and
I've lost my knife again so the s tens
really tale packaging is robust its high
quality and I do like how all the phone
and all the accessories they have a
place they fit neatly together you get
some pretty high grade EKG air phones
inside and I like how something is
finally settled on an all-black
accessory design I'm gonna give this
unboxing experience an 8 out of 10
okay Samsung Galaxy S 9 the outer
packaging isn't quite as minimal as what
we saw on the s10 it's a little more
wasteful as a couple of extra inserts
that are not quite needed but this is
beautifully packaged it's really sturdy
all the accessories are still there and
they still match here s8 and this box is
pretty much identical to the s9 s as
well as barely changing the design of
the phone between the s8 in the s9 the
actual packaging barely changed too so
I'm still gonna give this one an 8 out
of 10 on that unboxing experience okay
on to the galaxy s7 which I must have
spent a good 3 minutes trying to get
opened but once inside everything is
generally similar although I got to say
the quality of the box is a little lower
the accessories inside are not quite as
snugly packed together and the earphones
included on neuen air as good as the AKG
wants on newer offerings although they
are presented in this nice little box
okie-dokie s6 and this is actually a
phone that I've never unboxed in my life
around this time the channel wasn't
quite large enough to get invited to
some some events so kind of exciting
before sticking to the all-black theme
that they've got going on now Samsung
played around with an all-white theme
with this phone and it's decent although
the box quality itself is a further step
down galaxy s5 and this one picked up
quite a bit of flack for the way it
looks I think a lot of the time is being
compared to a band-aid let's take a look
for ourselves so now we're reaching a
bit more of an experimental phase in
Samsung's lineup before he really found
their footing with each galaxy
yes series oh yeah yeah I see it you can
really see the lack of consistency here
between the way the phone look the way
the accessories look and the outer
packaging now I'm gonna give this one a
4 out of 10 all right
s4 which from the outside looks pretty
much identical although I think it's a
tiny bit smaller yeah tiny bit smaller I
remember when this fern was being
announced they pitched this as the life
companion which to be fair is not a bad
concept it's just that what they meant
by this was that the firm would be
absolutely loaded with Samsung branded
applications to monitor every aspect of
your life got yourself a eco friendly
Quick Start Guide Samsung was really
pushing their sustainability angle with
this phone and so this is the first time
the box is made of 100% recycled
materials all righty Samsung Galaxy s3
and you can see from the s4 the massive
change in design aesthetic something is
back to black although with quite a bit
less consistency than their more recent
offerings packaging is quite clearly an
afterthought here everything just kind
of chucked in the bottom section this
one is still a 5 out of 10
galaxy s2 we're going to get really old
school here credit where do the Galaxy S
2's packaging is the most compact out of
the entire range and at least each
component here feels like it has a place
and so I'm giving this one a solid 6 out
of 10 Samsung Galaxy S I can just out a
corner of my eye see his tower tipping
all right this is the big one in terms
of physical size as well as important
this is the first in the Galaxy S lineup
you can see was born at a time when
instruction manuals were much more
important this thing is in full color
got the removable battery oh dear
this one is easily a 7 out of 10 on that
satisfaction rating massive nostalgia
trip okay this is hugely exciting having
10 generations of smartphone and one
frame and a few things become very
obvious between the Galaxy S one and the
s5 each successive smartphone was
slightly larger than the last but after
this there was no size increase what's
actually kind of funny is you've got
four perfectly normal-looking plastic
phones on the left you've got perfectly
normal-looking glass phones on the right
and then the mutant galaxy s5 in the
middle I really feel like this was a
design experiment gone wrong I also
thought I'd quickly show you the setup
process here because whilst I could
quite succinctly describe it with a word
painful it's not something a lot of
YouTube videos show you to cut a long
story short I've had to do the entire
setup process of a phone for charging
the updating the setting up of accounts
on 10 different devices from 10
different generations and as you go back
he gets slower and slower each time
stuff kept failing updates wouldn't
download on some devices and this
process took me almost through the whole
night anyways by morning I thought okay
we're ready to start shooting this video
finally but then I noticed a problem you
see the galaxy s 9 that I've got here
was just refusing to update to Android 9
PI even though the s 8 that was released
a whole year before it has that update
and I didn't want to make a comparison
video based on old software so I tried
everything I tried Samsung Smart Switch
which is meant to sometimes trigger an
update I tried using a manual install I
even tried using VPNs to trick it into
thinking I was in a different country
just to see if that would work but it
turns out that the unit I've got here
even though it was sold to me as a UK
unit turns out was actually originally
sourced from outside the European Union
so it wasn't actually getting support
for those updates all right so I spend
the last four hours trying to install a
software updates productive morning
anyways the only solution I came to is
that I had to go and buy a new one so I
had a to town centre head bowed in shame
at not being able to install an update
and whilst there I managed to pick one
up for the incredibly low price of just
530 pounds
and sarcasm anyways we're back and just
to stay away from the harrowing memories
of my lilac variant I went for blue this
time although I'm not sure I like it as
much anyways the first thing I want to
show you is how the unlocking patterns
have changed over time you can see the
s2s was pretty similar to the S one's
just a little more intricate the s3
inspired by pebbles apparently use this
water drop design which I quite like the
s4 though is definitely a favorite it's
kind of like a ray of light the s5 is
where minimalism and flat designs start
to become a little more important and by
the time you get to the s6 the focus has
shifted to just being simple this
continues for the s7 but I do like how
the s8 took this to the next level with
a dynamic wallpaper every time you are
lock the s9 has this – and the s10 kind
of ditched it which is a bit of a shame
what I think is interesting cameras
which starts off as a single camera and
actually remained a single camera all
the way to the galaxy s 9 is only with
the s 10 that had jumped all the way to
a triple okay time to take out 10
smartphones at the same time for a
camera test and fun fact the way I've
managed to keep these phones stuck in
the exact same place is using white TAC
I somehow managed to fit every single
smartphone into some sort of pocket at
the same time and so armed up like some
sort of human gadget amalgamation are
headed out to test cameras the first
test being directly into the light using
the rear cameras and you can tell the
first few phones are really struggling
with this as we then progress saturation
and dynamic range massively improve and
here's a quick earliest versus latest
comparison just so you can see how much
it's easy to forget that when the s1
came out a selfie was actually referred
to as a self photograph the whole idea
of it wasn't really a thing and so it's
not a surprise that front cameras kind
of sucked
to start with and they slowly become
more and more of a priority in fact it's
only with the s10 this year that dynamic
range is actually on par with a lot of
phone's rear cameras and of course
completely blows the s1 out of the water
and then the night time then you can see
as we start to progress in phones we
also start to progress in the amount of
light that is being captured some phones
choose to display it in a different way
but it's undeniable that the amount of
detail and high dynamic range being
captured is on the rise what I would say
though is that my favorite shot is
actually from the s
the s10 tries to capture almost too much
dynamic range and results in a loss of
image quality so as this is a speed test
primarily the initial plan was to run an
20 on all the phones just couldn't get
it to work on the Galaxy S one not even
past versions of it just continually
crushes so anyways I decided to shift
benchmarks so instead of that we're
going for passmark which is a benchmark
that test all sorts of different things
CPU GPU as well as memory and disk ok
now that's done if we look at the
overall system scores on each smartphone
you can see an interesting trend whilst
of course each phone is getting more
powerful the rate at which it does so is
not exactly constant some are 30% more
powerful than last and some are twice as
powerful but the most surprising thing
is that when you compare the Galaxy S 10
to the Galaxy S 1 that is about twenty
times more powerful if we take a look at
how long it takes each phone to open up
the camera the s-1 is incredibly slow
you almost definitely have missed
whatever you are trying to capture the
s2 again pretty slow and the same goes
for the s3 the s4 and in the s5 I think
a big part of the problem here is that
with those phones up until the Galaxy s6
Samsung was just focusing on putting
more and more stuff into their phones
without focusing on how light and fast
it feels the s6 is where that changed
and you feel it straightaway in the
camera the galaxy s7 that came a year
after is quite a bit faster and both
time to get to the s8 and the s9 and the
s10 that follows it you're getting a
pretty much instantaneous launch time I
also wanted to quickly show you how the
speakers have evolved throughout time
it's quite an interesting test and so
for this I pulled up YouTube on each of
the phones but of course with the s1 it
was never going to be easy was it it
turns out that even though it lets you
install and update it the YouTube app
doesn't actually work on Android
Gingerbread anymore anyways what I did
instead was just played the video
through an internet browser and this is
the result

so I don't even need to tell you there
is definitely a trend upwards in speaker
quality as a quick display test loading
up the Apple website on each phone shows
you just how much more newer smartphones
are able to fit on their displays
especially the jump between the S 9 in
the S 10 is quite noticeable when I was
browsing around I also did find that
some pages just wouldn't load on the S 4
s 3 s 2 and the S 1 and there's one more
thing I wanted to test when it comes to
display and that is putting an
equivalent wallpaper on all phones and
seeing how the contrast the saturation
and the color accuracy compare so I
found a wallpaper I liked and using a
bit of black magic known as Bluetooth I
caught it onto all 10 devices and a
couple of things become quite clear
you'll notice that actually the s nines
display out the box is more saturated
than the s tens and that the S eight is
where saturation peeks that's not to say
it's a better display than the s tens
whilst that phone doesn't shout and
scream for attention as much it is no
doubt the pinnacle of an incredibly
game-changing line of phones if you
enjoyed this video I've got a whole load
of old-school comparisons like this on
the channel so I'll link them from here
my name is Aaron this is mr. Hughes the
boss and I'll catch you in the next one
